- Packing Tips
Good packing is essential for a stress-free move. If you choose to do some or all of your own packing, it is important that you be familiar with professional packing techniques in order to help protect your possessions.
How to Move a Range or Stove
Stoves or ranges are easily damaged in a move due to their utility connections, glass or ceramic tops, intricate parts and polished finishes. The safest way to move your stove is to first give it a thorough cleaning well before your move date.
How to Move a Washer and Dryer
Many large appliances have gas or high-voltage electrical connections that require the attention of a qualified technician. It may be best to have such a specialist assist with your dishwasher’s preparation for transport.
How to Move Your Houseplants

Because they are perishable, federal law does not allow them to be transported by regulated moving vans for distances greater than 150 miles, or on trips greater than 24 hours in duration.
